This Ted Talk included Urban sharing stories about how his procrastination affected his school life, how he learned to deal with his own procrastination, and how he felt everyone was potentially a procrastinator.
“We have to think about what we are really procrastinating on, because everyone is procrastinating on something in life,” Urban said.
